Michael Linsmeier | Soloist

Joined OBT in 2011 | Soloist since 2013

Raised on a family dairy farm in Wisconsin, Michael Linsmeier started his training at the Jean Wolfmeyer School of Dance. He attended Virginia School of the Arts for further training. After performing with Milwaukee Ballet for seven years, he joined OBT in 2011 and was promoted to soloist in 2014. Since discovering dancing as an art, interpreting life’s journey through movement and design feels to be a much more honest and vulnerable way to express himself than words have ever been.
